Does anybody know where one can find/order sheets of cardboard or die-cut punchouts in different sizes. I thought I had found some suppliers, but they are out of stock:

 Can you be more specific on what type of punch outs you are seeking? Custom punchouts?

punch out sheets?

Can anyone tell me what is the correct terminology is for what I'm describing? At least I'll be better able to search for it online.

I think it's called chipboard die-cut counters/tiles/squares, etc... The kind of sheets you might see in a new Ra, for example. Those punchout sheets have to be manufactured somewhere. Aren't there any companies that have them just blank?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Die cut counters

I have been looking into the various scrapbooking-oriented personal die cutters out there and many of them would be up to cutting counter sheets on a half-sheet sized peice of cardboard. There are some dies avalible that do cut squares, but they all seem to be 1cm wich is a bit small for most of what we do.

I havent inquired but if there was enough interest maybe they would make dies that would be of use for people with our hobby. 1/2 inch to 1 inch squares and cirlcles would be good. It would also be well within the capacity of these machines to cut cards out as well.

The cheaper machines are less than 80 bucks and the dies range in price but start around 20.

Try your local printer...

Sometimes a local printing company can help out. Just ask them if they have any offcuts of 800/1000 gsm cardboard that you want cut into square pieces.

They can easily whip up pieces to any size (as long as it square or rectangular) using their heavy duty trimmers. Depending on the machine it should be able to slice through just a few layers of heavy duty board with no problem at all.

Most printers are pretty cool about this - perhaps smaller printers tend to be more 'available' for this type of request.

not in punch-board format...

sorry, my last thread was to help provide you with TOKENS. If you want an actual PUNCH BOARD then the printers probably won't be able to help (even if they do have a diecut ressembling the dimensions you want, they probably won't let you use it as it may actually belong to their client).
